Cavemen -- Extinction Can't Come Fast Enough

Postby Pacman » Tue Oct 09, 2007 8:18 pm

Just watched 15 minutes of this ABC show Cavemen... it may be the LEAST funny sitcom I've ever tried to endure.

It's literally painful to me.


My question: Is this one of those things that's actually HILLARIOUS, but I'm somehow missing it....? Like, I watched Napoleon Dynamite and hated it the first time... but I was convinced by a friend to watch it again, and I really liked it.

I somehow think that is not the case with Cavemen... but whatever.

I'm TiVoing it tonight because I watch something else at 8. I'm not expecting much though, as you're not the first person I've heard say it was bad.

Last Tuesday, I had ABC as background noise while I was working on something. Only saw Cavemen in glimpses, but it didn't surprise me to know that it was dreadful. I mean, the Geico Gecko, now that's worth building a program around.

I had paid a little more attention to the show right after it, Carpoolers. Promising idea, but it left me confused in the 2nd and last acts.

I agree, it's terrible. I watched most of it last week and it wasn't funny at all.

I caught the first couple segments of the show and couldn't take it anymore.

How is that Carpoolers show? Like AD said earlier, it seems like a promising idea for a show.

I just watched Carpoolers on DVR and thought it was pretty funny. The one guy's semi-retarded son was funny. I'll record it again.

I watched Cavemen the other night and didn't laugh once. It was mildly entertaining, but not funny. Not sure if I'll watch it again.

I enjoyed the first episode, but only laughed a few times tonight. I figured it was all downhill from the first episode.

Carpoolers has potential. It's hit and miss at times, but if it can make it past it's initial episode order, I think it will find it's stride.

didn't see the first episode but figured I'd give it a shot...bad, bad show.

I thought it would be creative and at least a little funny.

Sorry to hijack, but was Carpoolers any good yesterday? Didn't see it, but am willing to check it out again.
